Ransomware stinks...

Unfortunately, the VM that I run this messageboard on got hit with a Ransomware virus and encrypted everything including my most recent backups.

I rebuilt and restored things back to a few months ago, that's the best I can do until an AV company comes out with a decryption tool for the variant I got infected with (I'm not paying the $1,000 ransom to have my data unencrypted)

Anyhow, sorry for the loss of posts and some of the post images.

I am coming up with a different backup scheme to hopefully prevent issues in the future.
